To the Editor:

In Tuesday’s primary, I hope you consider Jeff Thorsen for county treasurer.

Having known Jeff and his family for over 40 years, I know the kind of man he is. He has dedicated much time giving back to the community – Lions Club, Shop with a Cop and Habitat for Humanity to name a few.

As a five-term Crystal Lake councilman, he has argued against unnecessary tax burdens on its citizens, and is always fair and fiscally conservative.

His 25-plus years in banking give him a great background for this position in the county.

Jeff will be a full-time treasurer. He wants to bring new transparency and disclosure to citizens so they can see where their hard-earned tax dollars are spent.

Now is the time to give the McHenry County Treasurer’s Office a new look and openness.

Vote for Jeff Thorsen on Tuesday.
